There is a whole weekend of festive fun this December at the Chesil Beach Christmas Bazaar. Dorset Wildlife Trust’s three-day extravaganza at the Fine Foundation Chesil Beach Centre will be a chance to shop for original gifts, sample Christmas fayre and get into the Christmas spirit with all the family.
The Centre, with a stunning location on the edge of the Fleet lagoon, is run by Dorset Wildlife Trust on behalf of a partnership including Weymouth and Portland Borough Council, the Jurassic Coast Team, the Chesil Bank and the Fleet Nature Reserve, with the continued help of local volunteers.
Snacks and drinks and, of course, mince pies and mulled cider.
The Christmas Bazaar will showcase local arts and crafts as well as a range of wildlife gifts including DWT’s exclusive Christmas cards and calendars. There will be activities for children including making a wild Christmas decoration, as well as a chance to try the new marine play boat, with ‘skate’ ramp, eel balance board and other fishy features. The Chesil Beach Cafe, run by Masterchef winner Mat Follas, will be serving delicious lunches, snacks and drinks and, of course, mince pies and mulled cider.
So make Christmas shopping this year a wild experience!
Emily Brown, Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Discover Chesil Project Officer, said: "Come and do your Christmas shopping and support Dorset's wildlife at the same time. The Chesil Beach Centre is a great place to watch wildlife - the winter birds are feeding near the Centre and our underwater camera gives a glimpse into the fascinating world under the sea. So make Christmas shopping this year a wild experience!"
The Chesil Beach Christmas Bazaar is from Friday 7th December to Sunday 9th December from 10am until 4pm at the Fine Foundation Chesil Beach Centre, A354 Portland Road, Weymouth DT4 9XE. For more information, ring 01305 206193.

Dorset Wildlife Trust works to champion wildlife and natural places, to engage and inspire people and to promote sustainable living. Founded in 1961, DWT is now the largest voluntary nature conservation organisation in Dorset, with over 25,000 members and over 40 nature reserves. Most are open daily and there are visitor centres providing a wealth of wildlife information at Brooklands Farm, Lorton Meadows, Kingcombe Meadows and Brownsea Island Nature Reserves, The Purbeck Marine Wildlife Reserve and the Urban Wildlife Centre at Upton Heath Nature Reserve. DWT plays a key role in dealing with local environmental issues and leads the way in establishing the practices of sustainable development and engaging new audiences in conservation, particularly in the urban areas.
